Moving files on the list.txt to different folder

Thanks for your post. Your script ZZZZ_script_V2 almost perfect for me. If you could modify the script for me for the following way that would be amazing.I would like to move the files which are listed on list.txt and not to copy them. The another think is there any way to remove the administration rights?
Thank you very much.

A little bit late for reply, but here you are.
Version with the search in subfolders.
Your script is really amazing. Thank you for sharing with us. I am not very good at scripting but I tried to modify your script by way off removing the Admin Rights and not to copy the files but move them temporarily. Without success. I have reading lots of posts but I cannot figure it out how to do it. If you could modify your script in this way it would be really amazing.

Thank your very much in advance for your time and help.

The script works fine, there is a problem when there are cyrillic symbols in the file names.
